So I got new eyes! All thanks to the staff and doctor at Penang Adventist Vision Centre.
I got intralasik done a couple days ago in Penang. Because I didnt’ have a camera, they had a photographer come in to document my entire experience. A little apprehensive at first about this surgery, but my aunt is a huge advocate for them and was giving me her first hand testimony about it.
Unlike the other LASIK procedures being offered, this particular one does not cut your cornea mechanically by a machine. Instead, it uses a laser to create a bubble on ur cornea which then creates a flap. SO the result… no red marks after the operation. I went through a series of tests to make sure i was a good candidate for LASIK and once approved, i was ready to move forward!
On the day of the procedure, i was slightly tense but the nurses and the assistants were there to let me know everything that was happening, every step of the way. They even offered to hold my hand during the procedure. From the minute i sat down to the minute i got up, i dont think it was more than 20 mins. So it goes by incredibly fast. There is no pain involved, except pressure or having ur eyes pryed open… more pics below.
A definite recommendation especially after the diva tantrums i threw when they couldn’t schedule me in. They’re far cheaper than the competition in KL by at least a few thousand.
